Stenciling can be fun when you have a system in place for each step of the process. Yesterday we mentioned how to properly remove the stencil from packaging and today it’s about cleaning the stencil. Being able to clean your stencils immediately after use helps you quickly move on to the rest of your project. Here’s some information to keep you stenciling in style.
- Keep the stencil flat when cleaning.
- Use a flat tray or flat bottom container like our Stufftainers with enough water to cover the stencil and tools. Set them into the water until you’re ready to clean.
- Gently scrub with a soft brush while the stencil stays flat in the tray.
- Place on a clean soft cloth to air dry or use a second cloth to dry while keeping it on a flat surface.
